Safari :: Week of May 20

MONTHLY FOCUS: God cares for me.
VERSE FOCUS: “He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God.” Deuteronomy 10:17 (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Daniel and the Lions Daniel 6

This week during our Safari experience, we made a craft and played a game to remind us that God cares for us. Grab your child’s lion den and Daniel puppet and play the game at home.

Say, “Let’s pretend this paper bag is the lion’s den. Let’s put Daniel in the lion’s den.” Show your toddler how to put Daniel in the paper bag.

Say, “Who kept Daniel safe in the lion’s den?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God did!”

Say, “Yes, God sent an angel to keep Daniel safe. Take Daniel out of the lion’s den. Yay! Daniel is safe. Can you put him back in the lion’s den?” Continue as long as your toddler shows interest.

After the activity say, “Daniel trusted God to take care of him. We don’t have to worry because God cares for us!”

Say, “Who cares for you?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God cares for me!”
